Have you tried a loader yet? If not you need to find a loader with the same firmware from a donor. The loader direct from the drive will not work.

H0 and H1 are obviously very weak, but looks like the can still read. Can you get the drive to boot up normally by using the loader and changing the head map in RAM? If not you may need a head swap.
